Okay so I decided I am going to make a university wish list, this probably overlaps as a bit of an early Christmas list too (realistically, no one should get given this sort of stuff for Uni, or if they do, I am VERY jealous) , i'd love to say it's practical for University (and that the government should kit us out with all of the above), but it's unfortunately, it's called a 'wishlist' for a reason, it's more of a 'if I won the lottery i'd take this to Uni with me' kind of list or 'if my Dad was Richard Branson this is what he'd buy me' list. I didn't want to bore you with the practicalities that I need such as toothpaste, clothes hangers, bed sheets so instead I tried to make a fun 'dream' list. But, I do love the simple pleasures, and I can't wait to go to Ikea next week (my favourite place IN the world) and OMG) I read in the newspaper the other day that they want to make an Ikea land which will take over a whole country (!?!?!) crazy!!! I'd get the first plane there, so I am VERY excited to buy myself all things boring, bed covers, towels and fluffy pillows - I am old before my time To be perfectly honest though, I can't believe I got the A Level results that I needed to get onto the Broadcast Journalism course at the University of Leeds in the first place, there's only about 40 places on the course, which is nothing in comparison to courses with hundreds of places, it's the best in the country and my fave sky presenter, Georgie Thompson did the exact course, so fingers crossed I can follow in her footsteps. (I just wish it was in London) at least in 3 years time, I can say I am an accredited Broadcast Journalist. *Touch wood!* Yes! Hello fresh start...
days until I move in: #11
#1 - Victoria's Secret luggage set, it had to be VS didn't it! Their glorious luggage sets, I nearly bought this set in black the other day for my trip to Belgium in November, at £130.00, i'm not sure if that's pricey or not!?
#2 - An Ipad! Okay so I am actually anti-Apple at the moment after they are trying to screw loads of pennies out of the wonderful Samsung, but I've always wanted an Ipad, no idea why as it's just a big Iphone but I think it'd be pretty cool rocking up to lectures armed with one of these, who needs a pen and paper when you can just use an ipad to take notes? OR, voice record the whole lecture. Tempting...
#3- A Mulberry weekend/travel bag - Why on Earth not? Anyone who reaaally knows me will know that i've wanted a Mulberry item for some time now, I'm not even fussy about what item that may be, but I suppose a weekend bag would be great to lug around uni. How practical, it actually screams 'mug me' to a criminal though, so maybe not so practical after all when you're a skint student. 'You can have everything inside, but please don't harm my Mulberry!'
#4 - Victoria's Secrets Lounge bottoms- Pleased to say that I bought two pairs of these recently, and some Abercrombie ones, bringing American preppiness to England, and why on earth not!?!
#5 - Some Ugg slippers, aaaaaweee Okay, so i've never been overly fussed about these, but it's gonna get cold, i'm gonna need to keep my feet warm and I suppose if I won the lottery i'd go all out and buy some super cosy, super fury Ugg slippers.
#6 - Victoria's Secret pillow cases - I think these are the COOLEST things i've EVER seen. I want them SO badly, but unfortunately for me, I can only find them on Ebay, where they are stupidly over priced and because I haven't won the lottery yet, I wont be buying these anytime soon. DAMN YOU EBAY.
#7 - Jack Wills weekend bag - Not fussed about the colour... gimme any oversized JW bag, why? Why not... I could fit my laptop, my speakers, my head phones, my phone, my books, my folders and everything else in this beauty AND transport them all to the library. woohoo.
#8 - A cute Starbucks coffee mug - why? To accompany my cute Ugg slippers in the winter months which are drawing closer... and closer.
#9 - Victoria's Secret water bottles - bright, vibrant and bursting with energy, they scream ... EXERCISE. And yes, I saved up and bought the green one 'let's work out' and I cannot wait to use it. I just need the other two colours now and then my collection is complete. Knowing me though, I will just sit them on a shelf because 'they look pretty'. Sometimes it's hard enjoying the simple pleasures in life.
#10 - A Samsung play TV - access Facebook and Twitter from under my duvet, with a remote control, from a super big, wide pretty telly? and catch up on the Kardashians, Hollyoaks, Waterloo road and all my other faves on hung over days? hmmmm I wish. I can't even afford the TV license let alone the TV.
#11 - Apple Mac laptop - So much for being Anti-Apple, yes I don't even think MAC's are that good (don't quote me though, it's probably because I'm used to the Windows operating system - ooee check me getting all technical on you), no but seriously they just look good, like soo good, so If I won the lottery, i'd want one, simply because they are easily the most elegant and classy laptops out there, and they go with the décor of my bedroom, bright white.
#12 - The White Company candle - Never to be lit, just to sit in the corner of my room and be smelt, and to look like a posh and pretty decoration.
#13 - A new watch, preferably Micheal Kors or Marc Jacobs. 'Em why do you need a new watch for Uni' 'because then I wont miss ANY lectures' it's not like my phone tells the time... and they double up as a gorgeous bracelet. I already have a watch, but I bet most people have two watches right? that way you can alternate depending on what outfit you're wearing.Yummy. Sounds like a plan.
#14 - Ralph Lauren towels- why have normal towels when you can have the Ralph Lauren logo encrusted onto them? In fact, i'll take the Ralph Lauren bed covers too (in baby pink).
And now, some bedroom inspirations for you... (if ONLY university accommodation looked like this)
At least we can go to Ikea and try to mimic these designs;
